COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale with currants added and aged in oak barrels.

When we made the Toronado’s 20th Anniversary Ale, we had no idea that it would turn out to be one of our favorite barrel aged beers we would ever make. With that said, we have always wanted to make a dark barrel aged beer using 100% Cabernet Sauvignon barrels but, we never were inspired. That is, until we blended five different beers to make the Toronado beer, the tobacco character from the the dark malts blended nicely with the furit character that developed in blending. So, with Concescration we set out to make a barrel beer using all Cabernet Sauvignon barrels. No, we are not saying that this is a replica of the T-rooms anniversary beer, after all, a beer like that can never be duplicated, and, there was no fruit added to that beer as there is with this one. All we are saying is that it gave us great inspiration to brew Consecration.

@ Russian River 16-3-7: En mycket komplex öl som är vinös med tydliga toner av nötter och russin.. Syrlig och torr.

Lots of berries and grapes in the aroma. Vinegary taste, with good length. Not a lot of balance.

CurbDog (110) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2016
Small off white head, mostly created from very high carbonation that keeps bubbles flowing to the top of the beer. Clear Ruby mahogany colour. Sour, tart dark fruit. Sour flavour, light chocolate, dark fruit, raspberry, cherry, very subtle funk. High carbonation, medium light mouthfeel, dry finish. Very nice blend of complexity.

TH28 (328) - - FEB 20, 2016
310ml bottle. 9/17/15 bottle date. Appearance: Deep brown, clear, with a ruby red hue. Fizzy carbonation on the pour, with an off white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma: Vinous sour cherry upfront, slight oak and berry character. Lactic acid noticeable. Taste: Rich malt sweetness, loads of dark fruit character, some light toasted oak, and a Cabernet note shows up on the swallow. Lactic sourness strong throughout, but builds to sharp bite at the finish. Mouthfeel: Medium body with a high carbonation. Very little evidence of the 10% ABV. Finish: Lingering cherry and lactic tartness Overall: An outstanding sour brown. Loads of dark fruit flavor highlighted by cherry, with a Cabernet vinous character throughout. Amazing complexity for a sour

Bottle shared by alexsdad06 batch 1001x4. Pour dark red with thin ecru head. Nose light funk, red wine, tart cherry, definitely fruit character. Taste nice tart up front, currant, plum, fig, trace of citrus and just a hint of anise. Some sweet malt late palate. Sweet and tart finish. Great flavors and complexity for an old beer.

mR_fr0g (7805) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2016
Draft sample at the brewpub, Santa Rosa. Medium copper coloured pour with a fading greyish head. Aroma is sharp plum, gooseberry, tart plum, some alcohol. Flavour is composed of semi sweet, plum and apricot jam, some toffee, mellow tartness. Palate is semi sweet, moderate carbonation. Lingering spicy fruit, apricot. A little boozy.
